Excellent, stay over for our final site meeting for the Whale Rally. Had a wonderful braai and "kuier" with our buddies.
No complaints what so ever.
Will definitely advertise Back Packer for sure.
Thanx.

Visit this lovely accommodation in Plettenberg Bay! :-) The staff was always very kind to us and helped us to plan and book all the activities we wanted to do. There is free Wifi, a bar with a balcony and a braai facility!

Glad to hear that your detour was worthwhile.

Next time you in the area with the bike give me some advance warning and I will show you some routes.

If I cannot go with myself I will point you in the right direction!

We spent two relaxing nights at Amakaya Backpackers. The place has a variety of rooms to suit most travelers needs. Beds were very comfortable. Our host had some great ideas for restaurants in the area as well. Highly recommend this place to anyone staying in Plettenberg Bay!
